Poetry & Photography Workshop
Most of us have heard the idiom “A picture is worth a thousand words.” Indeed, it’s true! Let’s prove it in this four-hour workshop where we will study the art of “ekphrasis” (writing poetry inspired by or in response to artwork; in this case—photographs).
We will learn about ekphrasis in the first half of the workshop through lecture and examples, and we will write poetry upon viewing photos in the second half of the workshop. Bring your own inspiring photos, or choose from the photos provided by the instructor.
All poetry writing skill levels are acceptable for this workshop. Poetry writing tips will be provided for beginners, if desired.
